Well, here's what I get for saying any band I'm in never got a chance... I've been rehersing with a local band, RANSOM, since about late August. Our progress has been pretty steady. Actually, we've been busting ass and getting songs togeather. Our plan was to start gigging in January. Well, that was untill our singer decided to call up an old favor and have a lil' meeting with a So Cal promoter/manager. Apperently he was so impressed with how our singer handled himself and from what the promoter heard on a rehersal tape our singer brought along that he offered us, right then and there, a headlining gig at an all-ages club in Orange County (I did'nt catch the name of the club. The singer was too busy practically peeing himself. ) on the 26th of this month. So, for better or worse, I guess we're making our debut a little earlier then expected. But let it go to show that perseverence and hard work in the biz eventually pay off. And hey, if you're in the area and want to come see a local Talkbasser, let me know. I'm sure I can scam ya'll a few tics.
